In this correspondence, maximum-likelihood M-ary detection theory is applied to an incoherent optical system model employing photo detectors governed by Laguerre counting statistics. It is shown that a maximum-likelihood Laguerre detector corresponds to a count comparison over each signaling interval. Error probability is derived.
